Pope Eutychian (Eutychianus) dies. Hardly anything is known about Pope Eutychian — even the dates of his reign are uncertain. The Liber Pontificalis says that Pope Eutychian ruled 8 years and 11 months, but Eusebius writes that he only ruled 10 months.

There are a couple of acts traditionally ascribed to him, for example approving of Christians blessing grapes and beans on the altar, but these stories are doubtful.
